Ludwig Djerve (Djerf?) Lorenz Lawrence ?? b. Dec. 2, 1838 or 1839 Sweden, died Minnesota

Classification: Query
Surnames: Lorenz, Laurence, Lawrence, Djerve, Djarve, Djerf? Lorenzson maybe?
The census records show that Ludwig Lawrence emigrated from Sweden in 1870.

By 1872, he was marrying in St. Peter, Nicollet County, Minnesota
I think the middle name is transcribed wrong:

Cert-13716
Date of Marriage Jan 4, 1872
LUDWIG DJCOF LAWRENCE
ANNA LOUISA SJOSTEN (Sjösten?)

Ludwig's death certificate gives his father's name as Mr. Djerve. Information given by his 2nd wife.

On the 1880 census he is Ludwig Lorenz,

1900 census he is

Ludvig L (Djerf) Laurence[1]
1838 -
Born Dec 1838 Sweden
Gender Male
Immigration 1870
Person ID I121441 Minnesota

On his daughter's death certificate, the spelling Djarve shows up. Maybe Djärve in Swedish?

By the end of his life, on his death certificate he is going by:

Ludwig Lawrence
Birth: Dec. 2, 1839
Death: Jan. 26, 1922
Burial:
Resurrection Cemetery
Saint Peter
Nicollet County
Minnesota, USA
